I'm arriving on Friday the 19th and staying at JJ's Paradise. I'm landing about 1:30 pm, if anyone is interested in sharing a cab. Anybody know how much a cab costs? The airport shuttle wants US$70.

We found that the airport shuttle at $70 is not per person. It was per shuttle, so if you can find some fellow riders, you win. Cab was more, we were told.

We're also arriving on the 19th - but not til 2:30. We're just going to go with the shuttle. If you feel like hanging around the airport for an hour, you can come with us!

A cab from the airport will cost more than the shuttle.

Last time I used it, the St Lucia Airport Taxi & Tours linked on the IWJ . NET website (Guyan Janus) is $70 per vehicle (not oer person) from UVF to Marigot Bay. BUT you need to use the discount code shown on the . NET page when booking. Random airport taxis can (and have been known to) charge upwards of $90 or more and I'm not sure if that is per car or per person.

I have personally paid random cabs $50 (1 passenger) between Rodney Bay and Marigot Bay and $95 for the worst white-knuckle ride between Rodney Bay and the airport.

I'll stick to pre-arranging my transfers with Janus in St Lucia.

I made our reservation today with Janus. She quoted us a price of $70 for 2 people. I forgot to mention the discount code but I did reference that we would be sailing with IWJ.

Yes, let's try to get together for a drink on the 20th. What time do you get in?

Linb we are arriving on the 3:15 flight and have an airport shuttle booked. Perhaps we'll see you in the bar once we get to the actual hotel! I'm a short red-head with a super handsome grizzly bear of a husband. Traveling with my mom who is also short with very dark hair. Look for us and we'll have a drink! And anybody else feel free. We'll be at Marigot Beach Club :)
